Steps Youth Programs Community Update,
I am so excited to welcome you all back to the dance studio (even virtually)! Please take a moment to scroll down and read, as you will find important information about the 2020-2021 Acadmic Year. I look forward to seeing all the dancers in class!
We are still accepting students in all of our Academic Year Programs We invite you to explore all of the options available for your child this year at Steps. We will continue with our First Steps, Kids and Teens, and Pre-Professional Programs, and are happy to introduce our new Academy Program, which will enable dancers ages 13 and older from performing arts high schools and middle schools to access high-level classes within Steps Youth Programs, in conjunction with their academic school schedules.
A few things to keep in mind:
– Steps Youth Programs will remain completely virtual through the month of December as we continue to wait for New York City’s approval to reopen. Our Active Safety Plan will be included in your registration materials and includes many new protocols to keep you dancer safe and healthy, as well as our teachers, accompanists, and staff members. In-person classes will be offered as a hybrid so that you will have the option of continuing to take classes virtually.
– All First Steps classes will remain virtual for the entire First Semester.
– The schedule for Kids and Teens, Academy, and Pre-Professional Programs will remain consistent throughout the year, whether online or in person.
– Tuition will be the same, whether online or in person.
Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out. If you would like to speak on the phone or via zoom, please click here to set up a time that is convenient for you.
I know that we will continue to have a great year together!
